For Your Redemption Draws Nigh
As I look at the world we now live in,
It's fulfilling all the prophecies of time past.
We hear of the wars and commotions,
Some wondering, just how long will it last?
We see the destruction of hurricanes,
Of floods, and of earthquakes worldwide,
There seems to be no end to the tragedies,
That is suffered by so many on all sides.
The blatant disregard for the Scriptures,
Man's desire to do things his own way,
God's laws are now considered unacceptable,
It's something we see more of each day.
Although things around us seem hopeless,
Something greater is still yet to be,
Along with the promise of God's judgment,
There'll be a day when the saved are set free.
No man knows the day or the hour,
When the Lord raptures those ready from the earth,
Even though we face tribulations in this lifetime,
When we see Him, we will realize its worth.
We'll be present with the One we so longed for,
Finally seeing our dear Savior face to face,
All the hurts and the sorrows will be forgotten,
And we'll now dwell in that heavenly place.
No longer will we endure all life's struggles,
The suffering and the tears will be no more,
Unspeakable joy and rest will abide there,
Nothing compares to what His Own have in store!
So, as you see the end times now unfolding,
The world growing darker as each day goes by,
Prepare your hearts and remember what He told us,
Look Up! For your redemption draws nigh!

Matthew 24:36 (KJV)
But of that day and hour
knoweth no man, no,
not the angels of heaven,
but my Father only.
